I love the blower. We built on to our home and this is the perfect size for the carport and back porch. Well worth the money.

I bought this one today to replace model 358 798340 which finally died after about 15 years. No curve in the blower tube makes it harder to get the leafs moving and the bottom half vacuum tube is shaped like a bell at the and causes the leaves to bottle neck where the tube narrows. Also the bag should open at the bottom making it easier to empty into leaf bags. Vac tube should be the same diameter top to bottom. Save your money and get something better. Found my old model online in California, used and will probably buy it.
I have been thru 3 different brands of electric blowers- they all claimed to be "quieter" or "50% more quieter" than most. Every one of them had this undeniable high-pitch tone that hurt my ears. I was about to give up on electric blowers, thinking I'd have to go to gas and maybe a professional like Echo to get painless leaf removal. I'm glad I gave this Craftsman a try - the decibel rating was what caught my attention. It's lightweight, the handle is super comfortable, and literally I can blow my entire driveway, sidewalk, and front entrance on the low setting. On low, it's powerful enough to move leaves and sticks (even after a rain), yet gentle enough not to strip all the mulch off my garden flower area. And the sound is great - no pain to my ears. I would say on low it's even less sound than my house vacuum. I just wanted a blower, and had no need for the bagging feature (I like to steer all the leaves under my garden area for good mulch breakdown). I'm very, very happy with this Craftsman - they did a good job.
I bought this because of the craftsman name ans was hoping that it was a good quality item like craftsman tools use to be. I was pleasantly surprised that for the price it did have plenty of blowing power. I have not used the vacuum attachment yet but I think it should be fine since it does have a metal impeller.

It's lightweight and easy to use. Both the blower and the vacuum worked fine, although the blower was not as powerful as I wanted (it worked well in open areas, but not as well on ground coverings) and the vacuum didn't reduce the volume of the leaves as much as I expected. I have only used it twice, so I can't say about its durability. For now, it is decent for the price (I got it on sale).
This is a very nice product for lightweight jobs. I use it for blowing dust and clean up DIY projects. Haven't used it wholly to blow the dry leaves yet.

Just what I was looking for. Works great and can't beat the price from a store with a great reputation!! Great for this time of year! Just blow all the leaves in a pile then suck them up into the bag!
